Justin Bieber set to host 'SNL' on Feb. 9
Justin Bieber will host and perform on “Saturday Night Live” on Feb. 9, according to Billboard.
The pop star tweeted Monday night, “maybe I’m hosting and performing on SNL...maybe.: ).” Billboard later independently confirmed the news and a date through a source.
Bieber appeared as the musical guest on the long-running show in April 2010. He showed up again in February 2011 in a “Church Chat” sketch and a pre-taped segment. This will be his first time pulling double duty.
His “SNL” appearance comes the week after he releases “Believe Acoustic” on Jan. 29. Originally slated as an 8-song EP featuring acoustic versions of the songs from 2012’s “Believe,” Bieber tweeted last month that the album has expanded to 10 songs, including some new material. “Every song has a new guitar arrangement...1 w/ piano. Everything feels new,” he tweeted.
Bieber is the second music artist to host and perform this season following Bruno Mars. A number of artists, ranging from Katy Perry, Mick Jagger, and Garth Brooks, have served as both artist and host. Maroon 5’s Adam Levine will host Jan. 26, but Kendrick Lamar will be the musical guest. Season 39 resumes Jan. 19 with Jennifer Lawrence as the host and The Lumineers as the musical guest.
So the only question is when will a skit about Bieber smoking pot will come in....before or after “Weekend Update.”
